Writing a Scientific Paper
A 4-day workshop that takes students through every step of writing a medical research paper, including responses to reviewers and revision.
Note: During the Covid-19 pandemic, I am teaching all courses online, via Zoom or other online course delivery service. When the pandemic is over, I will return to classroom teaching.
This course is designed to address common problems faced by non-native speakers who write medical papers in English. It demonstrates a clear method for building powerful, organized English paragraphs that will convey findings and ideas to readers. Participants will read and analyze paragraphs, and draft and edit their own, and will leave the course with a plan to ensure that their English writing continues to improve.
This course offers a set of evidence-based rules for writing clear and consistent Methods and Results sections. It encourages writers and gives you the tools to start writing Methods sections early in the research process, and to incrementally build Results sections that match your methods. Designed for medical researchers or clinicians who must write articles, reports, or who wish to submit grant applications.
